Friday’s Denver Post editorial page had one about the need for good
decision-making and management for our firefighters, as well as an improved
fire shelter. To access it, go here: (Ab simplified this, sorry for the delay…)


Because we all wrote and emailed our legislators last summer – and then 9/11
happened and the fire shelter discussion was tabled – I thought you might be
interested in knowing that someone out there is apparently still wanting to
make it happen for our guys and gals on the fire lines. This is the first
article I’ve seen here in the Denver papers. What are others seeing where
they are? I can’t speak to the opinion expressed there that said that the
investigation into the reason the air tanker in California crashed needed to
be speeded along; I don’t know how those things go, but I suspect that we’d
want a thorough investigation and if “speeding up” causes things to be
overlooked, that wouldn’t help our firefighters in the long run. I could
sure support an improved fire shelter, though. What do those of you more
knowledgeable about all this think?
